- Bachmann operates subsidiaries in China, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, US, India and Czech Republic.
- The company's core business fields are: 1) wind power plants, 2) renewable energies, 3) mechanical engineering and 4) maritime applications.
- The company has managed to win the largest contract in the wind sector ever and will develop condition monitoring systems for 1.300 wind turbines with a total volume of about 10 million euro.
- Also cruise, passenger and container ships worldwide use technology of Bachmann electronic in order to become more secure and efficient. The technology monitors the ships transmission and its movable parts wire- and contactless with no need for a battery 24/7 and is therefore able to identify defaults early.
The Condition Monitoring System from Bachmann electronic continuously records the condition of wind turbine components, identifying potential damage at an early stage. As an example, even re-mote, offshore wind power plants can be easily monitored from the mainland. Any irregularities indi-cated by the data can be handled very quickly. This significantly reduces downtime, maintenance costs and repairs. Bachmann has now been revolutionizing the wind turbine market since 2016. With the GIO (General Input/Output) module, another new development from Bachmann, the same mod-ule can be used for a wide variety of applications. When faced with complex topics, the development team identifies simple solutions. The GIO module processes essential automation functions quickly and easily. Using software, customers can change the function of the GIO module at any time, reducing maintenance times and lowering storage costs.
